While Asus recently announced a ZenFone 5
series of smartphones, this is not available in the US yet. Thus, the best Asus handset that can be currently bought stateside remains the ZenFone 4 Pro
, a high-end device first released in October.
Originally priced at $599.99, the unlocked Asus ZenFone 4 Pro
can now be purchased for just $399.99 via Best Buy. This is the official US variant of the phone - it comes with warranty and is compatible with GSM/LTE carriers like AT&T and T-Mobile (but won't work on Verizon and Sprint).
Recently updated to Android 8 Oreo
, the Asus ZenFone 4
Pro offers plenty of attractive features, including a Qualcomm Snapdragon 835 processor, 6 GB of RAM, 64 GB of expandable storage space, a dual 12 MP rear camera, and a 3600 mAh battery.
The handset sports a 5.5-inch AMOLED display with 1080 x 1920 pixels and very noticeable top and bottom bezels, so it’s got a design that some may find outdated. If that doesn’t bother you, and you think the ZenFone 4 Pro is worth $399, you can order the phone from Best Buy via the source link below.
